A part of our Old City Tour, after visiting Shirvanshahs’ Palace, stopped for few minuets near a great statue of a famous poet named Vahid. Our guide gave us a brief about his activity during the revolution

I must admit this huge portrait statue drew my attention although I've never heard of this poet. I bumped it while exiting the old town beneath the Shirvashah's palace by the Miniature books museum. Pay attention to many details on his hair.

This poet's monument gets better when seen from up close. The details of the portrait is beautiful, especially the hair part. Don't miss it while in the old town.

Don't forget to get up close to see the details! You could easily just glance at the sculpture and not realise. Best seen close up!
